75th Anniversary Guest Book
I want to express my deep appreciation to NSPE for the many things it has done for the Licensed Engineer. The engineering profession is the most rewarding, the most ethical and the most important in making this great country what it is today. The highlight of my career was when I was privileged to serve as NSPE's President. It was a true joy to represent our society during that time. Glenda and I met many, many wonderful people throughout this country and Canada that we are still proud to call as friends! I did not ask for it, but trying to implement major reorganization took much of my time and effort. Since I had spent my working career in industry, I had wanted my main thrust to be providing leadership to adjust the mindset of NSPE, NCEES and others so that the huge number of working engineers in industry could and would become licensed. It would have made NSPE much stronger and able to provide even greater service to the individual engineer. I had my shot, but failed in this endeavor. I have no regrets for trying.
I love NSPE and the engineering profession and wish the present and future leadership nothing but the best in their endeavors.

I value the many years I have been associated with NSPE. The friendships that have been developed are invaluable. The years I have spent working on committees and task forces, serving in the officer line-up, and culminating by serving our engineering profession in general and NSPE in particular as President in 200405 rank extemely high in my career highlights. Our profession has been good to me, so the least I can do is give of my time, energy and resources to serve the profession.
Working with volunteers throughout the nation has given me the opportunity to hear different sides of issues and to help us as a group to make conscientious and wise decisions. Our staff at the NSPE Headquarters are an enjoyment to know personally and to work with each and everyone of them. We are most fortunate to have had, and still have, a dedicated staff.
I wish NSPE continued success in the future.
